One Powerful Quote To Remind Yourself Of Today

About90

“About 90% of the things in your life are right. Make sure you don’t overlook the 90% that’s right because you’re focusing on the 10% that’s not.” – Dale Carnegie

Isn’t that a great quote? It’s actually one of my favorite quotes of all time. And, Today, if you’re like me, and also have a lot going on, this is a great quote to remember.

Take a quick minute and think about it…

Even if everything isn’t 100% perfect today, when you’re honest with yourself and you look at things from the right perspective, you can see that at least 90% of the things in your life are working and going right. That’s right, 90%.

And, 90% is a lot going right.

But, have you noticed how your mind will try to focus mostly on what’s wrong or the 10% that’s not working? It’s like all the bad stuff comes to mind quickly and sticks around, but it’s not as easy to remember and stay focused on all the good stuff that’s going well.

This was the exact problem I ran into earlier today. [Read more…]

5 Simple But Powerful Thoughts To Have Today

“You must learn a new way to think before you can master a new way to be.” Marianne Williamson

I’ll admit it. I was a bit naive.

I used to think the day was going to come when that negative voice in my mind would be gone once and for all. You know the voice that’s notorious for focusing on all the wrong things.

It continually tries to get you to worry about one thing or another. I call it the Chief Negativity Officer and its always quick to respond anytime something goes wrong or you have any doubts.

It says all types of things …

” Things aren’t ever going to work out.”
” Don’t get your hopes up. Every time you do that you just end up being disappointed again.”
” You’re never going to get where you want to be.”
“What are you going to do when things don’t work out?” (and so many other negative thoughts)

3 Simple Things You Can Do To Have A Great Thanksgiving

Everymoment.jpg“Every moment you get is a gift. Why waste it by dwelling on things that make you unhappy. Spend it doing the things you love and be with the people you enjoy.”

Have you always had great Thanksgiving days? I was thinking about some of my past Thanksgivings and I realized I didn’t always do Thanksgiving “the right way”. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy the day and feel grateful for all my family and friends.

But, there were so many years I wasn’t taking full advantage of enjoying and experiencing the day because I was distracted by many of the thoughts running through my mind.

Sometimes I would be thinking about why people did or said certain things …

“Why did she say that to me? Did I do something wrong?”

“Why does he always do that? It is so rude.”

Other times I would be thinking or worrying about things that had nothing to do with Thanksgiving day.

“What if things keep getting worse at work?”

“I don’t know if things are ever going to work out.”

Have you ever noticed all the thoughts that can recycle through your mind over and over again and take your attention away from enjoying and experiencing the moment in front of you? A lot of times you may not even realize how much your mind is wandering and how all your worrying, thinking, and mental complaining is affecting how you feel. That was the trap I was falling into and not even really realizing it.

But, I finally figured out there is a better way to move through the day … a much much better way.

“Just because we’re in a stressful situation doesn’t mean that we have to get stressed out. You may be in the storm. The key is, don’t let the storm get in you.” -Osteen

It really is easy to fall into the trap of worrying and getting all worked up when it feels like things are going wrong. I know I have fallen into that trap far too many times.

It can be so hard when something you’re hoping for doesn’t happen or when it feels like things are never going to fall into place. The backside of the Possibility Spiral can push and test our limits.

But, do you want to know one of the most important things I realized?

No matter what’s going on around you or how challenging things seem at times, if you can just settle your mind and live from your Extraordinary Side  for as many moments of the day as possible, you can maintain the ideal mindset, feel good, and continually take the right steps forward. As time passes, you work through your challenges one by one and things slowly but surely smooth out.

So, whatever you’re working through Today or waiting on to fall into place…Remind yourself of this Truth. The day is coming when you will look back on all that you’ve gone through and let out a sigh of relief because you did it. You made it and finally got to where you wanted to be. Life rearranged perfectly.

But, in order for more and more things to fall into place, it is important to not waste your minutes during the day worrying, getting upset or focusing on the wrong things. [Read more…]
